Starting Saturday, the Presbyterian Church USA will begin marrying same-sex couples.
The Presbyterian Church USA voted Thursday to allow pastors to marry same-sex couples in the 19 states where it's legal, and Washington D.C., where gay marriage is recognized.
The votes came in by a large margin of 371-238 in favor of allowing ministers to celebrate same-sex marriages.
The church also voted to change the language about marriage in the church constitution from the union of a "man and a woman" to "two persons," but that still has to be approved.
This amendment must be approved by a majority of the 172 regional presbyteries.
